Debian package library - Ubuntu

I have 14 CDs of Debian 3.1. My OS is Kububntu 6.1. I would like to access this Debian library from within aptitude running under Kubuntu, so that I can install whatever packages I want. What would be the easiest way to do this? Thanks...

    You can just add the cd's to your /etc/apt/sources.list.

    BUT your debian 'sarge' cd's are quite OLD, and those packages probably
    not compatible with Kubuntu 6.1.

    It's Kubuntu 6.10, not 6.1 as the numbers are the year and month of
    release
     

    You can use apt-cdrom to make the package system aware of the CDs. But
    installing will not work for most of the packages (unless you force
    downgrading and ignoring of dependencies) as Debian and Kubuntu are
    different distributions and Debian .1 is much older than Kubuntu 6.10.
